Regular Davis Anime Club meetings are held from 8:00 – 10:00 pm in Wellman 126 every Wednesday and Thursday this quarter. AfterDAC this week is at In-N-Out, Thursday at 10 PM.
Our Wednesday night meetings feature three continuing anime, with an extended break in between where we hold DACtivities, which are small activities we’ve organized to help you interact with and hopefully get to know other DAC members. DACtivities are entirely optional, so if you would rather just come for the anime, you’re more than welcome to sit them out!
Our Thursday night meetings feature four continuing anime, with a shorter break in between for everyone to socialize! Thursday meetings are also followed by AfterDAC, an optional after-meeting activity, where you can join DAC as we head over to a nearby restaurant or food establishment, providing you with an excellent opportunity to get to know the rest of DAC a little better, or just to grab something to eat with a group of people! AfterDAC doesn’t have a set time it ends at, though people usually head home around midnight.
